Our first site was deal-mac.com, started in 1997 by Daniel de Grandpre and Richard Moss, friends since middle school. deal-mac.com’s mission was to collect the various Apple Macintosh bargains on the web into one central source. Dan managed the content while Richard managed the programming behind the web site. By creating convenience for Mac bargain hunters, the site became an instant hit. dealmac dropped the hyphen in 1998. In 1999, dealnews.com was born to list deals on PC hardware and software, DVD movies, TVs, and anything else that our core audience (techie geeks) would want. While we’ve since added more sites — her.dealnews, dealcoupon, dealram, dealcam, and dealink — we’ve stayed true to our original mission: listing only the best offers from reputable merchants.
